You can hear what the concert sounded like here.
What no one foresaw was that 1981 would be the last year of the Uptown's life as a live music venue. A December 19, 1981 show by the J. Geils Band was its swan song.
After lying dormant since 1981, the theater was in the news last summer, when it was announced that the once-magnificent building would be restored. (We still can't believe it's happening!)
Work is scheduled to begin in August, and the Uptown should be open for business -- again -- in early 2021, just about forty years after the Dead played their three-night stand.
We can't wait. CanNOT wait!
